Two Show Jumpers by Cicero listed for sale on Horse Scout

Cicero a stallion with some of the greats in his breeding line has had, not only had olympic success himself but his progeny, whilst still young, are showing themselves as extremely competitive i.e. Galisco van Paemel, Cyrano d’Orbri, Cinderella C, Fenia van Klapscheut and Ciska van Paemel Z were all jumping Grand Prix at 8 and on Cicero’s dams side Rendez Vouz (v. Radel Z) there the superstars of the show jumping world too.  Cornet Obolensky, (one of the great stallions at stud on Horse Scout) Vivaldo en Querido vh Costersveld, Lorrain Z – With blood lines like this and obvious success in the ring already these two horses for sale on Horse Scout must surely have a future ahead of them in the competitive arena.

The older of the two jumpers came to David Simons (DLS Showjumping) already showing promise at 1.40 but needing more experience.  David has gone on to produce a show stopper with this lovely grey gelding advertised on Horse Scout under horses for sale who has proven himself this year with a sixth at the Allington CS12* grand prix and by jointly winning the CS14* Puissance (see image) at the Bolesworth International.  This handsome well made show jumper, Cicero Gotti, also took 8th in the Hickstead Derby and is ranked as Grade C jumping 1.40m+.   David Simpson, the Irish International Show Jumper, produces horses with his wife Louise from their yard in Coolham, where they have excellent trial facilities.

Another Cicero offspring for sale on Horse Scout is a stunning mare x Oklund called Dice.  (See here) Advertised on Horse Scout Horses for Sale pages as a very suitable straightforward competitive horse for a teenager of someone coming off ponies, a testament to a good temperament. Currently jumping new comers he is described as brave, bold and careful.  This mare is good to hack alone or in company and has three lovely paces.

This Newcomers Show Jumping Mare is for sale through Louis Simmons in East Sussex.

This shows how versatile a stallion cicero is producing horses with good temperaments and scope.


Joe Clayton – International Show Jumper


Joe Clayton, 26 –  International show jumper –  Nottinghamshire

 Horse Scout speaks to the international show jumper about working for Olympian Michael Whitaker, his top horses, favourite stallions, ultimate goals and achievements

You’re second cousin to John and Michael Whitaker — were you riding horses before you could walk?

No, my mum has always had horses so I’ve always been around them, but I was into football mainly and only really started riding when I was 11.

And when did you started jumping?

As soon as I started to ride…

Didn’t you fall off?

I could ride straight but fell off at the corners…

So how did you learn to stay on?

My mum had lessons with Susie Gibson and I started having 10 minutes at the beginning or end of her lesson and pretty soon I’d hijacked her entire lesson. I also had some good ponies — from William Whitaker, who was just around the corner.

What was your first job?

I went to work for Alan Fazakerley (British pony team coach) and Sally Lane in Essex, before coming back up north to Michael Whitaker’s yard. I’ve been here eight or nine years now.

So your trainer is Michael Whitaker?

Yes, he’s really helpful on the flat and jump. His son, Jack, is here too and we chat amongst ourselves and work together as a team, trying to improve and make our horses better.

What’s a typical week for the horses when you’re at home?

Flatwork Monday and Tuesday and a grid Wednesday for the young ones, followed by perhaps a couple of local shows. The older ones don’t jump too much but they get to hack around the block and go on the treadmill in the afternoon. We’ve just had a gallops put in which is really useful and they go on that to warm up and loosen off most days. They all get a day off and time in the field.

What’s your best tip for budding show jumpers?

Keep going… it can be difficult but keep training and you’ll figure it out.

And your advice for buying a show jumper?

Pick something that suits you – don’t buy a sharp one if you’re hot seated for example.

And do you think bloodlines are important?

If a horse jumps and it’s good, sometimes doesn’t matter. But I do find bloodlines interesting and it’s handy to see how many good horses certain stallions have produced.

So do you have a favourite stallion?

Not really, although I’ve had a couple of amazing horses by Calvaro, there are a lot of good stallions out there like Concord and Heartbreaker. Michaels seven-year-old grey stallion, Valmy de La Lande (Mylord Carthago x Starter), is also looking like a serious future prospect — I won the mare and stallion class on him at Hickstead recently.

Tell us about your main horses and their main achievements.

My top ride is Conman JX, a 2007 bay gelding (Conterno Grande x Chacoa) owned by Michael Whitaker and Sarah Billington. He’s come on so much and has lots of ability although still a bit green at the level he’s jumping at.

He’s done a few Nation Cups and 5-star Grand Prix and came third at the Nations Cup in Falsterbo, Sweden this year.

He’s a bit of a funny character, quite nervous and needs his own space. He hates other horses so he goes out on his own and can be quite hard to ride with other horses around which means I sometimes have to warm up early.

Cally V is a 2008 chestnut mare, home bred by Michael (Calvaro out of a good mare of Michael’s).

She’s scopey and very promising jumping 1.40s normally clear. She’s done a couple of international shows and gone well in the small classes.

Millioninmind is a 2007 bay gelding, owned by Steve Barnes. He’s very promising and won Grade C at HOYs last yar, now competing 1.40 and 1.45 two-star Grand Prix. He placed first at a 3-star this year. He’s cheeky, likes his food and always overweight.

Lexie III is another homebred mare by Calvaro (2009) and has qualified for Newcomers HOYs.

She’s another funny character and can be a bit of a madam sometimes.

Do you have time to ride any more?

I’m always looking for good horses and owners who would like to support me.

So what would you consider your best achievement?

Jumping double clear at the super league Nations Cup (5-star) last year in Gijon, Spain.

I’ve won the puissance at HOYs puissance twice on two different horses.

Also winning at the accumulator a The Great Yorkshire show in 2015.

And your ultimate goal?

Like most people, I would love to ride at the Olympics one day… I would love to win the Grand Prix (Cock of the North) at my favourite show (Great Yorkshire) and win at Championship level one day!

Why Horse Scout?

It’s great to build a profile and to see those of other riders. The horses you browse, aren’t the same ones all the time either.

horse scout talks to eoin gallagher international horse producer

Eoin Gallagher, Irish international show jumper, 29, Lincoln


Eoin Gallagher, The Irish international show jumper, based in Lincoln talks to Horse Scout about producing top class young horses and his dream to ride for his country.

How did you get into show jumping?

I’m actually not from an equestrian background at all… Born in County Down, I’m from a Gaelic footballing family, but as I was seriously ill with meningitis when I was seven, I was too weak to play. My next door neighbour went to pony lessons so I ended up tagging along. One day he stopped going. I never did…

What are your biggest achievements since then?

As a Junior I managed to get on a few trips to England with some good results, then a bursary to train with Stephen Hadley followed on from that. I was National Inter Varsity champion in Ireland when I attended Ulster university, before securing a full-time job with Dermott Lennon.

This year I had a couple of 2nds at a CSI 3-star show in Lanaken, Belgium, with Corbeagh Luxor in the 1.45m classes. More recently I have won a few 1.40m classes on the national circuit with horses I have produced from a young age.

Tell us about Corbeagh Luxor

He’s an 11-year-old, 16.2hh gelding — Irish bred (Corbeagh Vella x Lux Z (KWPN)).

I only began riding him this year and had some of the best results after just two months. He is scopey but like many Irish, easy to ride. Due to the success at Lanaken and various placings, he’s just been sold. I’m disappointed to no longer be able to compete him but he has a promising future with his new owners.

So you prefer riding Irish-bred horses?

Most Irish horses are fun and straight forward.

Some of the Continentals are more talented but take more figuring out to get better results.

So do you breed and if so what? 

I just started breeding with my mare Loughview Diamond Lux (half sister to Loughview Lou Lou) as she unfortunately got injured earlier in the year. I picked the stallion Action Breaker (son of Heartbreaker) — a KWPN. I chose Action Breaker as I was very impressed by his jumping technique, his attitude and rideability. His qualities compliment my mares very well.

Tell us about some of your other horses.

Lord Luidam is an 8-year old, 16.3hh gelding (Luidam x Northern Madera) who belongs to my wife. We’ve had him since he was five, and this year he stepped up to 1.40m classes, winning the Nottinghamshire County Show in May.

Illustro De Laubry is an 8-year-old, 16.2hh gelding (Beverly VD Heffinck out of Uganda De Laubry x Darco) who I ride for Sophie Marsh and her family and is jumping up to 1.30m.

Laroc is a 7-year-old German-bred gelding, also owned by the Marsh family. I’ve only had him for six months and I’m producing him slowly, giving him time to mature. He won a 1.30m class at Messingham Show recently.

Finally, Quontum, an 8-year-old gelding owned by Melanie Davison, is here for the summer.

What is your goal this year and beyond?

Longterm it’s every rider’s goal to ride for their country and if that opportunity arises I’ll grab it.

I’ve never really had any long-term campaigners at a higher level because the 8-year-olds get sold on and I’ve always had slightly younger (5,6,7 year olds) to produce.

For now, I’ll continue to build a strong team of horses and maintain good relationships with their owners to help keep moving the business forward.

You’ve have a lot of experience training young horses — any tips?

Be patient! It’s very easy to get disillusioned as they can be challenging and keep you guessing. When I was younger I was guilty of thinking of the next show and not thinking about a year down the line… I guess I’ve grown to learn it’s not always about tomorrow but the longterm, particularly with the young ones. In terms of their weekly schedule, like any of my horses they get a day off every week and turnout every day in the paddock. More time (eg three sessions a week) will be spent on flatwork than jumping and I find lunging on the pessoa can help too.

Do you train with someone?

Not often enough. If I am struggling with something, I’ll go to Dermot Lennon.

He helped me last summer and a couple of little things made a huge difference. By letting his head down a bit and lengthening and shortening the trot and canter, the horse gained more strength and started working better.

What are your top tips for buying a show jumper?

Don’t make any rash decisions and, if you are not sure, ask someone you respect.

A lot of riders are confident in their own ability and think they can make a horse better, but it’s easier to have a good horse and let it teach you, than try to make a bad one into a good one.

What’s the best tip you’ve ever been given?

If you always do what you always did you always get what you always got.

I think that applies to life, not just horses.

Another good bit of advice, I think by 2006 World Champion Jos Lansink, is that when things go wrong go back to the basics.

Who else has inspired you?

Growing up… Eddie Macken, who is retired now.

More recently, Scott Brash has been an inspiration to whole industry — someone the same age as me beating the guys who have been around for generations…

I also admire John Whitaker at the highest level.

Why Horse Scout?

I liked it from the moment I saw it. It’s great that there is somewhere that targets more elite horse sales and the social/connections side of Horse Scout is so different from any other equestrian website — it’s cool that someone has finally thought outside the box!
